Revision Breast Augmentation Is Perfect If You’re Dissatisfied with Your Augmentation Results

January 5, 2018, 9:44 pm

Proportionate breasts can make for a perfect and beautiful body. Many times, the breasts are too big or too small for the rest of the body. In these cases, the effect on the entire body is unappealing. Women undergo breast augmentation surgery to improve the size of their breasts and make them more proportional.

Unfortunately, there are times when a woman is dissatisfied with the results of her breast augmentation. For these cases, there is a way to correct the first surgery: breast revision surgery.

Breast Revision Surgery

A breast revision is a surgery that is often very similar to the initial breast augmentation surgery. During the procedure, the previously placed implants are typically removed, repositioned, or replaced. The original incisions are used, so no new incisions will need to be created.

The general idea behind the procedure is to make sure that you are satisfied with the end results of your breast augmentation. Breast revision can be used to correct any complications that might have resulted from your initial augmentation surgery. It can also be used to change the aesthetic results.

The Consultation

When visiting a surgeon for breast revision, it is important to first go through the preliminary checks once again, because over time, your body can change. You must discuss your health and diet with the surgeon. You must also talk about smoking and consumption of alcohol. Finally, if you are the kind of person that indulges in a lot of strenuous activities, this must also be discussed.

You must go into depth regarding the exact nature of the issues that have resulted from your initial augmentation. This will help the surgeon work towards achieving your goals.

The Revision Procedure

The exact procedure will vary depending on the reason for the revision. It can be used to change the implant size, solve capsular contracture, correct implant rippling, reposition implants, remove implants entirely, or elevate the position of the nipple-areolar complex.

In all these cases, anesthesia will be administered to make the patient more comfortable. After the incision, the necessary changes will be made.

Once the surgery is complete, the patient will experience a degree of slight discomfort, swelling, and bruising, which will heal over the next few days. It will be vital to follow the surgeon’s care and recovery instructions as closely as possible.

The Benefits

Breast revision can offer a new lease on life. If you’ve been unhappy with the results of a procedure you had a great deal of hope for, breast revision surgery can offer the aesthetic results you had been hoping for. Breast revision can also address complications, allowing you to return to proper health.
